CLEVELAND — We have been hearing from countless viewers since our Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins shared the news earlier this week that she has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
The outpouring of support has been incredible.
"Thank you all for the well wishes," Monica said. "I am so eternally grateful for all of the thoughts and the prayers. I'm simply overwhelmed. I had no idea that this would have the impact it does, but I am deeply, deeply touched. Thank you."
Many of you are still asking how you can reach out to send Monica your love and support. There are several ways you can share your well wishes with Monica.
If you would like to send in a card or written letter, please send it as follows:
WKYC Studios c/o Monica Robins
1333 Lakeside Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44114
We will make sure all of them are delivered to Monica.
"I'm the health reporter, so of course I'm going to do a story on my own brain tumor," Monica said when first sharing the news. "If my story can help one other person, or perhaps be somebody else's survival guide, that's what I do for a living. Unfortunately, I wish I wasn't the patient. It is what it is, and I'm going to approach this like I do everything else in life."
She said the situation has forced her to have some very deep reflection.
"You never know how strong you are until you're faced with something like this. I have a lot of things left to do. I'm telling myself I'm training for an MMA fight. I know it's going to kick my butt, but I'm going to do everything I can in my power. i want to be back at work."
Monica, from all of us here at 3News, we love you! You've got this! We're here with you for every step of the way!
